Whilst the age-old tale that says knitting is only for old ladies continues to have a legacy, these stars tell a different story. We bet you you’ll be pleasantly surprised by these modern day yarn-crafting fans and guarantee there is more out there that we don’t even know about. One day the power of wool will unite us all together and Ryan Gosling and knitters worldwide will be alike. We hope anyway.
Oh yes, this singing sensation was spotted in Springwools in Dublin buying a whole lot of wool. The Thank U Next star picked up some King Cole, Sirdar and Sonas Irish skeins, splashing a total of €269 on her knitting resources. This CCTV showed the world-famous solo artist at the till and browsing the shelves. Apparently, the singer is a keen knitter and began with her mum at age 13.
This ballad-belting beauty shared a picture on her Instagram in 2017 knitting on a plane. From the looks of it, chunky knits are her thing so perhaps we’ll see her sporting her own thick knits for Autumn/Winter 2020. One thing is for sure, she certainly looks most content.
The Duchess of Cambridge confessed to a fan on a visit to Scotland back in 2013 that she had taken up knitting as a hobby whilst pregnant – however wasn’t very good at it! Six years on and we aren’t sure if three children later Kate will have much time for the odd spot of knitting…
Once on set for the filming of Lars and the Real Girl, Gosling found himself in a room with older ladies knitting and they taught him the tricks of the trade. He shared with GQ magazine, “It was one of the most relaxing days of my life.” Maybe we will see the Notebook hunk joining a local Knit and Natter group soon? We’re sure the members will be very welcoming!
Whether it is confirmed or just a staged rumour, a picture says a thousand words and this photo screams 3: Russell, Crowe, Knits. We’re not sure about you, but we think he looks great doing it too! What’s not to love about a man waving the flag of equality and proving yarn craft is not just a female hobby?
